With God at the center of our lives, even the simplest of things are infused with peace and joy!

My name is Gena, and I'm an Amberlink hen ..... Mom's pride and joy. (shhh.....don't tell the others ..... they all think they are, but I know better!) lol Actually, we all are. She loves us ALL very much!

If you have a moment, get a cup of tea or coffee, and I'll tell you a little bit about myself.

I am an 8 month old white hen, with a red comb and matching wattle. I love to sing, especially while laying my eggs. I lay one a day and after a few days, I take a vacation day! I enjoy running around the yard foraging for good bugs and grass, giving high chest bumps to my sisters, taking dirt baths, sunbathing, and just breathing in that good 'ole country air. I also like playing outside with my 6 sisters while we chase Dexter (the dog) and show him who's boss!

I really like it when Mom comes outside to feed us and give us water. She plays with us and gives us big hugs and scratches our backs. (ahhhh!) She always makes sure our shed is warm and clean (until we mess it up) and we have something to play with. (to read about that, please click HERE!)

I LOVE cheesey grits, apples, homemade bread, cabbage, lettuce, cracked corn, toast, and so many other yummy things that Mom makes for us. We are excited that she is going to be getting us some seedless grapes soon. She said she can't wait to see us eat them. Somehow I think that it's more for ENTERTAINMENT purposes than as a treat, but hey.....food is food, right?

So.....who are YOU and what do YOU like to do?

Buk buk buk buk bukka~
